Well Maintained and Quiet Place to Live

I've had a great experience at Woodbury. They are extremely on top of maintenance and even send maintenance crews to take care of various things from time to time without prompting. The neighborhood is mostly grad students and young professionals/families from what I can tell. It's generally pretty quiet and pretty to walk around. My only "complaints" are that I wish my unit was bigger for the price I'm paying and that the walk to the UM Campus (~ 25 minutes) is long when the weather is bad (but great when the weather is nice).

Good Location. Great Amenities. Amazing Management

No complaints after living at Woodbury for a semester. Any maintenance issues are addressed promptly. Neighbors are lax and allow reasonably-sized gatherings. Shuttle to and from campus is a huge help. Free coffee every morning for residents. Free parking (car ports available too). The only complaint I have about the house is that the amount of ceiling lighting is minimal in living room, bedrooms, and dining area, so we needed to buy a lot of standing lamps. Other than that, great place.

Great Place to Live

Woodbury is a great neighborhood. The only negative is distance from Ross. The apartments are clean and well maintained. The staff is nice - best place to be a dog owner.

Convenient apartments but bad management

Value for money wise, a Woodbury apartment is pretty convenient, but it is definitely not Luxury Living as it likes to describe itself. The maintenance staff is very competent but leasing and management office will always take the easy way out and string you on when you bring up any issues. There’s a nice Ross community at Woodbury, but I’m not sure if I would decide to live here again.

Great apartment community and great value

Great size, quality of apartment. Great green space. Could be closer to school but the best part is that the public bus stop is literally across from us and there is a separate shuttle that runs regularly to Ross.

Very good accomodation

- Clean and friendly community.
- Apartments are spacious and well maintained with a lot of storage space
- Management has been pretty good about repairs for our individual units
- Shuttle makes it very easy to get to and from campus except in the late evening, but the city bus drops off quite close to the residential area.
- Decent number of activities in the area (bowling, York restaurants, Fraser's pub for sports, etc) however no grocery store nearby means at least one roommate with a car is essential.

Just what I need

The best part about Woodbury is the people. My neighbors are friendly and the staff are so responsive. I love the coffee every morning and have enjoyed working in the clubhouse, exercising in the gym, and swimming in the pool. Spacious and safe surroundings to walk my dogs in. Easy to get to campus; walkable to fun coffee shops.

Great to be close to MBAs

Woodbury is great to be close to other MBAs. We have built a strong community here. There are some downsides here, though. It was stated breakfast would be provided and they only provided it one day a week. It recently increased to 3 days a week after enough people complained. However, breakfast should be five days a week and not 3. My unit is an upgraded unit w/o a washer and dryer. We have a shared laundry that takes multiple cycles to dry the clothes properly, costing more money to clean your clothes. We do laundry about once a week between my partner and me, and it cost about $40 or more a month.
Maintenance is excellent though they typically come the next day. Also, people forget to mention that when it rains hard or it's extra windy, there are power outages. Not sure if it is a DTE issue or a Woodbury issue. Also, not a fan of the gym; it could use better weights.

Good location to be close but not too close to campus

I enjoy being within 10 minutes of most attractions in Ann Arbor and not having to deal with student congestion of being too close to campus. Also, the mix of students and non-students in the community is pretty balanced. The apartments themselves are mediocre; if you have more disposable income, I'd recommend going for the upgraded apartments as the out-dated apartments are not maintained at the same level as the upgraded ones.

Woodbury Gardens is its own community - so we don't get a lot of surrounding neighborhood effect and it's quieter.

I haven't had to go to school in person yet (due to the pandemic) - but once things are back in person, I would use the community shuttle to get to campus and possibly back depending on the time of day I head back. Otherwise, I would take the bus or walk. Walking takes about 30 min but the bus will cut down most of that since there is a city stop right at the entrance to Woodbury.
This neighborhood is "undergrad territory": lots of loud parties on the weekends. BUT it'll be this loud this close to campus, no matter what neighborhood, due to proximity to the big house
Safe, albeit there have been bicycle theft issues. It is quiet here in the community. Walking distance to UM Stadium, not far from Whole Foods, Trader Joes, Plum Market, etc...
Lots of green space if you have a dog or children. Close to the stadium, about 5-10 minute drive to Ross and downtown.
Not a lot around, but there is nice space to walk, public parks, and it is fairly quiet
Quiet, good for families, far enough to not deal with UM student traffic.
This is primarily an undergrad neighborhood. There are no bars nearby, just Dominos, Subway, and other small fast food places. It is also loud and noisy especially during games. It's very close to the IM gym and law school though, which is great.
Overall, a nice and quiet neighborhood that feels secure and is slightly removed from campus, so you're away from the hustle and bustle of the University. Definitely a grad student neighborhood. Close to public transit lines, and there is a nice grocery store near the apartment complex. Running trails are nearby, and road access to I-94 is pretty quick as well. Within an extended walk of campus, the Big House, and Ross. Really enjoy living here.
